. >>> as soon as dzhokhar tsarnaev is medically available, he will be questioned by the federal government's elite high-value detainee interrogation group. so how do they get inside the mind of a terrorist? my next guest spent 30 years in counterterrorism and was the co-lead of the u.s.s. cole bombing investigation. joining me now in studio, robert mcfadden, former deputy assistant director for counterintelligence operations. let's go to what's happening inside that hospital room right now, this high-value detainee is being interviewed, if he can speak, which actually remains in question. what are the first things they need to find out. >> just going by my background and working some cases like this before, and with an acknowledgement that i'm going to have to come up with some different term that we remain in speculation territory. but in a case like this, first and foremost, is the medical question. he's got to be lucid, cleared by doctors, and then the interview will start. the very first thing, once a degree of rapport and accord is built with the young man will be any other plots. bec
of massachusetts at dartmouth where the younger tsarnaev was enrolled told nbc's jeff rossen that dzhokhar actually discussed the bombings at the gym the day after they took place. >> i talked to him about normal things going on in the day. i talked to him about how it was crazy we had a bombing in boston. >> you said that to him, talked about the bombing? >> yeah. he said it's really sad it's happening, it's a sad thing. it happens around the world, people here aren't used to it. >> reporter: he said it's sad? >> he said it's sad. looked me straight in the eye and said that. >> officials tell nbc federal charges will include a description of a still unreleased fbi video of the suspect putting his back pac down at the site of the second bombing and then acting very differently from those around him when the first bomb went off. >> this suspect took the backpack off, put it down. did not react when the first explosion went off. and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion. >> now, bringing charges in federal court would end the contentious debate that's played out over the
details today about the suspects in the boston marathon bombing. ja h dzhokhar tsarnaev is listed in serious condition after he was taken into custody. the 19-year-old was found hiding in a boat parked outside a watertown home and there are new suspicions his older brother, who died in the shootout with police early friday morning, could have received terrorist training or support abroad. an official familiar with the matter tells nbc news that a foreign government has expressed concern back in 2011 that tamerlan tsarnaev could have ties to terrorism. the official says the fbi investigated but found no such links and reported the findings back to that foreign government. let's bring in msnbc analyst and former hostage negotiator james cavanagh. james, thanks for joining me again and great work yesterday through all of the mayhem, but i'm curious about the frequency with which we get a warning from a foreign government about someone who is here in our country that potentially has ties to terrorism. >> you know, that stuff does come in to federal agencies all the time really, alex.
morning to you. big questions of whether or not dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged as an enemy combatant. what do we know about where the white house is leaning? >> reporter: the white house is convinced the way this is being handled presently is the way it should be handled. that krcriticism about whether not tsarnaev should be handled as an enemy combatant is coming from republican lawmakers, john mccain and lindsey graham, kelly ayotte, and new york's representative, peter king. let's give you a accepts where this is right now. so law enforcement enacted basically an effort not to read tsarnaev his miranda rights. that means not telling him he has the right to remain silent under what they call the public safety exception, allows them to get as much information as they can within the immediate hours after his arrest. in case there is information about other plots or perhaps other accomplices but it's li likely that he hasn't even been questioned yet because of his state, his serious condition, that this may not matter. he may have been read his miranda rights by a judge as early as to
who has been all over this story. j dzhokhar tsarnaev will be charged in a civilian court given the debate we have been talking about this this morning. that will be happening to him? >> no question. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound
as they misinspectfied the boston bombing suspect, dzhokhar tsarnaev -- >> bill: that's close. >> the text came up as an actress who stars as on new girl. >> i tweeted the picture. i had quite an evening -- because i tweeted the pick chair and within moments joel mchale the actor and comedian, he retweeted it and then i would say about 30 minutes later she retweeted it. >> bill: oh. >> i got a direct message from her. >> bill: you did? >> yes i did. >> bill: very nice. >> yeah it got out there. >> bill: we'll get the pulitzer prize for peter ogburn. >> yes and we can safely say that peter went viral on friday night. >> i was trending in canada. >> al michaels had one too many over the weekend he was arrested and charged with a dui. he was pulled over friday night in santa monica california and spent five hours behind bars to sober up. >> bill: dummy. >> i'll say this, i have cold called a lot of people to come on and be guest, and i cold called al michaels one time in the hotel room. meanest sob i have ever dealt with. but now that we know he drinks -- >> bill: that's it. you
purchased, about the video surveillance that led them to dzhokhar tsarnaev, and the purpose is to show the evidence that they have against this guy, and they're going to lay some, but not all, of that out in the fbi affidavit. >> mike, precisely, specifically, what is he likely to be charged with? >> reporter: well, it's going to be terrorism-relatinged charges, and that could include a charge for use of weapons of mass destruction. the ied bombs will be, can fit under that section of the federal code, and that -- that and these other charges could -- would lead to the death penalty, if convicted. doesn't mean that the federal government will seek the death penalty, but these charges could result in the death penalty. we won't know whether the justice department is seeking the death penalty from this criminal complaint charge today. that will come much later. >> let's talk about the wound to the throat we're starting to hear about. that apparently has prevented him from being able to speak. how are interrogators going to get around this? just a simple, they ask questions and he writes
